What is the Significance of Rabbits' Large Ears

A rabbit is a small furry mammal with a short tail and pointed ears. Rabbits live in burrows in the ground. Each burrow is the home of a single family. The first fossils which can be attributed to this family came from North America but now they are found in every part of the world. Compared to its small body rabbit has large-sized ears.

A rabbit is a weak and timid animal and is always surrounded by many enemies. Therefore nature has gifted it with large ears to help it to hear even the fun of drop sound. The large area of the ear catches almost every sound wave produced in the air and transfers them into the inner ear. This makes the rabbit to detect its enemies in time and run to safety zones.

You must have noticed that a rabbit washes its ears by repeatedly licking its forepaws and rubbing them over the surface of its ears. It does this in order to keep its ears clean, and also to take into its mouth natural oil which surrounds the ear surface. This oil is important in forming vitamin D which is necessary for the growth of healthy bones. If the rabbit is not allowed to form this, it will develop rickets.

Dear Emily,

How are you doing? Remember me? We met at "Smutzer Primate Museum" in Ragunan Zoo in Jakarta last month. I am really glad that you chose my country to spend the vacation. Sorry, I cannot enclose our photos here, because you know, my youngest brother, Irfan, deleted them. I had not kept them yet in the camera. Here I give you some photos of Irfan's birthday. We celebrated it by having lunch together. You can see my big family. My mom roasted 3 big fish for us. And we had hot chili sauce or sambal to eat with that roasted fish. Hm ... yummy!

How about your activity this semester? You're in class 11th , right? I want to know about Victoria. I want to be your pen pal, so I can improve my English, and you can improve your Bahasa Indonesia, too. Okay, that's all for the first letter. I am looking forward to hearing from you. Send my love to your mom and grandma. Bye!
